Conference Paper
Traffic barrier integrated with retaining wall system is a reliable and quick method which can be used in in highway bridge design. In general, barrier walls must resist vehicle collision loads; thus, the joints between the barrier wall and top of the retaining wall should be designed to spread the effect of those collision loads over the entire, o...
Conference Paper
Clause 5.7.1.3 of the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code of 2014 introduced an equation for the calculation of the transverse moment in deck slab cantilever due to truck loading. It also specifies table 5.15 which limited to unstiffened and New Jersey barrier. The drawback of this Clause is that it does not take into account the effect of the leng...
Conference Paper
Prefabricated bridge systems and connection technology have been utilized to accelerate bridge construction to limit traffic disruption. One of these prefabricated bridge systems is adjacent precast deck-free concrete box beams. Adjacent precast box beams are placed side by side with 15 mm gaps, whereas the precast top flanges of adjacent box beams...
Conference Paper
Recently, prefabricated bridge elements, systems connection technology have extensively been used in North America to reduce construction time. They also provides safety advantages and reduce construction-related traffic disruption for commuters and travelers. One of these systems is the adjacent precast deck-free concrete box beams. Adjacent preca...

Clause 5.7.1.3 of the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code (CHBDC) specifies an equation for the calculation of transverse moment intensity (My) in the deck slab cantilever due to truck loading in a slab-on-girder bridge system. Also, it states that the transverse moment intensity shall be assumed 2My for the locations within a distance equal to can...
Conference Paper
Clause 5.7.1.3 of the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code of 2014 specifies an equation for the calculation of the transverse moment in deck slab cantilever due to truck loading. Also, it states that those portions of the cantilever slab that are within a distance equal to the cantilever length of transverse free end of the slab, the transverse mom...
Conference Paper
Vehicular traffic exists on the high (fill) side of the concrete retaining wall supporting soil embankment outside the bridge structure. For traffic on the high side, a conventional traffic barrier might be placed on the top of the wall with rigid joint between them. The applied vehicle impact loads on the barrier wall are available in the Canadian...
